A tag-team of the best songwriters you will find out there in music right now. – Saving Country 2013

The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit defies categorization, usually settling for some hybrid of Americana, folk, rock, bluegrass, and that sweet, old country & western. But, they describe their efforts as trying to make good, honest, insightful music, that’s not afraid of a good time and a little fun, that people will move their feet to, and that also goes real well with a straight road and a long drive. The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC is thrilled to bring this talented band and their music to Marin County.

Made up of two Americana singer-songwriters, an indie-rock veteran of a drummer, country-born bassist, and metal-bred pedal steel player, what you get is the rough-hewn yet driftwood-smooth; rebel-headed, but heart-of-gold sound of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. The Outfit includes singer-songwriters Chris Doud and Willy Taylor, drummer Aaron Burtch, Taylor Webster on Bass and vocals, and multi-instrumentalists Matt Cordano and Chandler Pratt. Likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Brothers to Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and even Neil Young (depending on which live set you happen to catch.
